Breakfast Meat

Homemade Turkey Breakfast Sausage – Take 2

I made America’s Test Kitchen’s turkey breakfast sausage before, but it took a lot of work cooking and re-cooking the meat.  Well, more work than I would care for just for some sausage.  So, here is a recipe I came up with throwing things in and it tasted really good and pretty close to regular breakfast sausage, minus the pork grease.  The kids loved them and gobbled them up without knowing the difference.  I put them on a 100% whole wheat biscuit which will be the next recipe.

These could be shaped into patties, used in a casserole, added to a frittata, etc.

Homemade Turkey Breakfast Sausage
yield 1 lb.

1 lb. ground turkey
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1 and 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dried sage (don’t leave this one out!!)
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper (adjust to taste for kids)
1 and 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. coriander

1.  Mix it all up in a big bowl.
2.  Cook on medium to medium-high heat in a skillet.

All done!


    1. Yes, ground pork is pretty high in fat. Fat is great for you, in moderation of course. I make my own to avoid the MSG or BHA that most manufacturers add to their pork sausage. Even the “homemade” stuff at our local grocery store uses BHA in it.
